10 Songs To Definitely Have On Your Wedding Playlist For This And Every Other Season
Weddings in India or anywhere else for that matter are always a grand affair. From celebrations starting weeks before the actual D-Day, and relatives dropping in every night to join in on the happy occasion, the shaadi waala ghar is always buzzing until the wedding happens and that usually means lots and lots of food, drinks and some desi old naach gaana. With preparations for the sangeet kicking in – from choosing the kind of songs you’d request the DJ to play at your wedding to steps to every song – music is one of the greatest responsibility to look after and it helps to string all the events together, which is why having a wedding playlist in place always comes in handy. Here are some of our best picks to add to your wedding playlist to make it full dhamaal affair –
